The Washington Huskies travel to Oregon to take on the Ducks Thursday and Jimmy Boyd suggests putting 1 unit on Washington to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Oregon –7.5, but the line has since dropped to Oregon –7.
Boyd writes: Washington's big win over UCLA gives the Huskies some much needed confidence and momentum when they set back out on the road tonight. Washington won the first meeting this season at home by 8 points and I like this one to go right down to the wire so we'll take the points. The Huskies are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning SU record. The Huskies are also 14-5 ATS versus very good shooting teams making >=48% of their shots after 15+ games under coach Romar. Oregon is just 16-31 ATS off a road win since 1997 and just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. Take the points in what should be a nailbiter.
Public betting information shows that of the 2,788 wagers currently placed on tonight’s game, 61% of bettors like the Oregon Ducks to cover the 7-point spread against the Washington Huskies. Accuscore agrees with the public and has made Oregon a 73% favorite tonight to defeat the Washington Huskies.
